The Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden is a magical place filled with stories of ancient people and mythical creatures, perfect for multi-sensory learning. Our school programs make for fun and engaging field trips for students of all ages and are also designed to meet the learning outcomes of the BC Provincial curriculum.
Program topics include life in Ming dynasty China (1368-1644), immigration to BC, science and technology, festivals and holidays, philosophy and mythical creatures. Try dragon boating with your students, an add-on a historic Chinatown Walking Tour, or a taiji lesson to any program.
